Midsummer in Sweden

Today we are celebrating midsummer in Sweden, wich is as important as Christmas! It’s the longest day of the year. Nearly no night at all. So we are starting off with some herring, new potatoes, some greens. And we sing, and drink schnapps. 🤪
In the afternoon we are dancing around a midsummer pole, that we have covered in flowers. We celebrate the light, the green and according to some the pole represents fertility.
And then we play some silly outdoor games. In the evening there’s a big barbecue.
